Pagan Dance from the CD ‘Rite of Passage’ performed by the Platypus Ensemble and the Proton String Quartet. It’s the first part of the composition ‘The translation of El Chicho, the Saint’ from 2005

Below you can listen to a sample of Vrindavan in Vindala from the same CD ‘Rite of Passage’. Vrindavan was originally composed for a singer plus tentet, it was commissioned by the Finnish jazz singer Mirja Mäkelä.
Vrindavan turned out to be one of my favourite pieces so I arranged it also for jazz quartet and string quartet which is the version underneath.
